Although I don’t usually do much besides spend time at home with family when I’m in California, Chris came to visit this spring break, so we decided to explore a little. It’s been a while since I’ve lived full-time in the Bay Area, and to be quite honest, I really don’t know the area well. Stores change all the time, and there’s always something new being built, and I don’t think much of the familiar views. But Chris was amusingly in awe of how “Californian” everything looked, the trees and mountains and short houses, and it made me – for once – notice and pursue the natural beauty of the Bay. Here’s some pictures we took.
